2013 328i w/o Xenon wants to Upgrade to Xenon

Good Morning,

I know this is like beating a dead horse but does anyone have the part #'s for the required equipment to go from non xenon to xenon. I know its a $900 option but I couldn't wait the necessary time and had to get a car that was on hand at the dealership .

Any comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Braman BMW,

Check out this link at RealOEM. I am not sure if everything is self contained in the headlight or there is another module that is required...

Good luck... I am looking into retrofitting a back up camera.

A nice coat of P21s will make that a non existent problem.

I have never ordered from them and only used them to get price quotes. Their shipping is crazy, however it's only $12.26 for the second light... so a mere $312.26 for GROUND Shipping.

I am new to BMW, so I will need to research parts vendors.

I just think we need to swap out the headlight plus the xenon lights + balasts.
